Winery: Thorn Clarke

The Thorn Clarke Estate
The winery owners are David and Cheryl Clarke (born Thorn) and their son Sam is the manager of the winery. The Thorn-Clarke family has a long history in the Barossa - six generations of involvement in the region's world famous wine industry. The Thorns have been grape growers in the Barossa since the 1870's. David Clarke's passion for the wine industry lead to the planting of the Kabininge vineyard outside of Tanunda in 1987, which represents the start of a deeper involvement by the family in the Barossa wine industry.

The Thorn Clarke Vineyards
St Kitts and Truro Vineyards--Cooler, and with lower rainfall, these northern Barossa vineyards totaling 103 hectares, are at an elevation of between 380 and 410 meters.
Mt Crawford Vineyard--Late ripening, high rainfall and with elevations as high as 475 meters above sea level, this 37 hectare Eden Valley vineyard can easily be confused with the Adelaide Hills - which is after all just across the range.  This site was specially selected as it was considered ideal to grow grape varieties which respond to cold climate.
Kabininge Vineyard--In stark contrast, the 33 hectare Kabininge vineyard is true Barossa Valley floor terroir. At just 270 meters above sea level red winegrapes ripen easily here.
Milton Park Vineyard--Located in classic Eden Valley country, between Angaston and Keyneton, the Milton Park vineyard has an elevation of between 330 and 400 meters above sea level.

OnePio Lugana Bianco 2017

Closeout


OnePio Lugana Bianco is made from 100% Trebbiano di Lugana 

No oak. Ageing on the lees for 6 months, plus an extra month in the bottle.

Soft, harmonious, full and well-balanced wine with straw yellow color. Multifaceted and fragrant aromas of almond, citrus and a slight touch of fresh pineapple. These wines can often be a touch on the dull side, but Onepoi is anything but dull. This perfectly balanced creamy white coats the palate leaving you wanting more of its minerality and refreshing citrus flavors. 

Grapes are grown on Clayish soils with Southern Sun exposure. The vineyards is 14 hectares in size (34.6 acres)
The best grapes are exclusively harvested by hand in small 15-kilo wooden basket that are placed in a refrigerating room for one day. 
Later, the grapes are washed with a special ozone treated water. After drying, the grapes are divided in two batches. 
The first batch undergoes the maceration, process connected to tradition, that leaves the obtained must in contact with the skins in a tank (one day), so it’s possible to obtain an higher extract of colors and perfumes, respecting the organoleptic features of the wine. 
The second batch faces a process more linked to innovative technology, so the grapes are pressed vacuum-sealed directly with the wine press at cold-temperatures. In this way the must is oxidized as little as possible. 
Both processing methods allow conferring a more complex gustative and visual aspect to the final product. The must decants for 24 hours, in order to eliminate the most unrefined particles. During the alcoholic fermentation, selected yeasts are added at the temperature of 19°C.

RS: 5 gr/L
Dry extract: 23.9 gr/L
TA: 6.40 gr/L

Perfect as an aperitif. It is also delicious with starters, fresh cheeses, black truffle dishes, fish and white meat.

Review:

The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Pieds dans les Galets Vieilles Vignes delivers raspberry and garrigue notes, a medium to full-bodied palate and supple, velvety tannins. It's really drinkable, a far cry from super ripe and highly extracted examples of the appellation, but it's still delicious and a pure joy to drink, now and for the next decade. -  Joe Czerwinski Wine Advocate 92 Points

Siegel Single Vineyard Los Lingues Cabernet Sauvignon 2015


Viña Siegel Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of our family's continuous search for quality wines with personality which faithfully reflect the best of our terroir. This wine comes from selected grapes from our "Los Lingues" vineyard in Alto Colchagua.

Located in the foothills of the Andes where the influence of the Andean winds result in an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with great concentration of ripe red fruits, cassis and chocolate, and a balanced, richly structured, and long finish.

An intense violet color. Smells of cassis and is complemented with notes of mature red fruit and chocolate. A round and elegant wine with an excellent final persistence.

After carefully determining the moment for the harvest, the grapes are harvested by hand and later de-stemmed and marinated in cold temperatures for 5-6 days. Alcoholic fermentation is between 26ºC and 29ºC during which daily reassembly is implemented according to taste.Post-fermentation infusion lasts for two or three weeks. Once the blend is made, the wine is gently clarified and stabilized in cool temperatures if necessary.

 


Review:

"Siegel’s style, influenced by French consultant, Didier Debono, is all about freshness, balance and focus. This well-priced aromatic Cabernet from Los Lingues is a case in point, with fine tannins and a long, mineral-edged finish. 2020-25"
